Sky swapping HD and SD channels in February

Sky will start having a separate EPG lineup for Sky+ HD customers from February 2011.

For example, Sky1 is on channel 106 at the moment with Sky1 HD on channel 170, whereas from February the standard definition version of Sky1 will move to channel 170 with Sky1 HD being moved to a much better EPG position of channel 106.

Channel numbers will remain unchanged on non Sky+ HD boxes.

The new EPG lineup will be known as “HD Swap Bouquet” on Sky+ HD boxes, and standard boxes will have the “Standard Bouquet”.
